French 2cv - Best car in the World

Best car in the World

I have always loved 2CV’s. They are such fun cars. A huge surprise. Mark has just bought me one!!….

How can you not smile whilst driving a 2CV !!…

The Vide Grenier was a huge success. The rain held off and the 22 stand holders were all happy with the footfall and money was changing hands. Looks like Reminiac will be holding annual car boot sales!!..

We have just been back to England to collect the 2CV…. What a fantastic little car. It drove from Luton to Portsmouth and then from St Malo to Reminiac with absolutely no problems at all. I then drove to La Maison Bleue yesterday evening and it refused to start again. Enough is enough it seemed to say… Opened the bonnet, whacked the starter motor… still refused to start. Our guests in Bleue kindly lent me their phone… called Mark. He arrived and it started first time !… maybe whacking the starter motor isn’t the thing to do !!…
